I have taken a series of online courses from SETT. The instructor was wonderful and patient with us seniors and never made us feel inadequate about any of the many questions we asked. The course material on apps for seniors was wonderful. I am enjoying using the many recommended Apps. I am now more confident using my computer, iPad and iPhone.
